So, finally Sarah Palin can admit that teen pregnancy ain't all fun 'n' games.
"When Bristol and Levi first told us the shocking news that she was pregnant, to be honest, we all at first looked at the situation with some fear and a bit of despair," Palin said in a statement following the birth of - eh em - Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on December 27th.
Despair, huh? Aw, but I thought all pregnancies were God's little sprinkling of happy holy fairy dust gifts........or something........?
And abortion would be like - I don't know - returning that gift grandma got you that you reeeeeally don't want, but it's rude to take it back, so you wear it or have it out when she's around so she doesn't get insulted.
Anyway, even mama Bristol is speaking out against her own situation. "Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with - this isn't ideal," she said. She also shared that she's putting off her own personal plans in order to be there for her son. I give her props for that.
Reality will probably set in quickly, now that baby daddy Levi Johnston has just quit his Alaskan oil field job - amid concerns that he is a high school dropout.
And he got hired how????
